THE STORY:

You’ve seen the Seed & Feed Marching Abominable, right? An Atlanta institution, this all-volunteer community marching band has been in action “marching” in outrageous costumery for 36 years. Yep, that’s a long time, and a lot of feather boas. More recently, the band was the highlight of our wedding, leading the march to the ceremony with In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, a tune that, frankly, every gal should have played at their wedding.

But this isn’t about me. It’s about raising money for this nonprofit band that brings joyful music and moderate mayhem to unsuspecting groups of people gathered for events like benefit fundraisers, weddings, holiday parades. It’s about making this corner of the world a little more colorful and fun. You can read more about the band at our website: http://www.seedandfeed.org

I was active in the band in the 90’s, and recently rejoined. Quickly thereafter, I said “yes” when asked to run for “queen,” which begat this fundraising campaign. If I raise more than the other queen wannabes, I get a cool crown. (Note to self: save the visit to “Sauced” until after band practice.)

Now it’s your turn. Your tax-deductible donation will help fund free band appearances at charity benefits, like when we play for groups like the Atlanta Special Citizens, Atlanta Community Food Bank, ALS Walk, Veterans, Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the Heart Walk. Donations also help the nonprofit band pay overhead expenses for things like music and rent on our practice facility.

Donate today to sustain a bit of zanity in an otherwise dull world! I’ll even donate the crown to the highest bidder!

Pssst! The band is an open-enrollment, all-volunteer organization. Did you play a band instrument in school? Yes, we all know it was a long time ago, but really, it’s like falling off a bike. You can join simply by showing up for a weekly practice at 8pm Tuesday evenings at the L5P Community Center. You don’t even need to sign a liability waiver. It’s that easy. Be the Band.

Because next year, I want you to be easier to spot in the L5P Halloween parade (apparently, the blue hair wasn't enough for my worn eyes), I hope you win the queen's crown! 6 years ago
